Updated advice on coronavirus (COVID-19)
Yarra Council is closely following the advice of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. Following the State Government's announcement on 11 May 2020 to ease coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, we have decided to reopen the market on Saturday 16 May 2020.
Physical distancing and other safety and hygiene measures will be in place to protect shoppers and local traders. This includes:
- Providing hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities
- Limiting the numbers of people in the market at any one time to maintain a 1.5 metre distance
- Managing queues to allow ease of access
- Using contactless payments where available at stalls
- Asking customers to not handle produce and wash thoroughly before eating
Markets are considered an essential service, as they are an important source of fresh produce for our community and support our local businesses.
Some traders are offering home delivery or collection of their produce. If you would like to place an order in advance you can contact the trader directly using the information below.

About the market
Every Saturday, Gleadell Street in Richmond is transformed into a bustling fresh food market, overflowing with seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh bread, herbs, flowers and other gourmet delights.
The Gleadell Street Market is plastic-free, so remember to bring your reusable shopping bag to carry your purchases. Stallholders are allowed to use biodegradable bags only and must not have them on display.
The market is owned and operated by Yarra City Council.
We hold a stallholders’ working group quarterly and all stallholders are invited.
The market is open on Saturdays from 7am to 1pm.
Gleadell Street, Richmond VIC 3121
Gleadell Street is 15 minutes east of Melbourne CBD. Catch tram 48 or 75 and disembark at Stop 19 – Richmond Town Hall.
How do I set up a stall?
Stallholders tend to stay for many years, and there are no casual stalls, so the turnover is very low.
Given the high demand for stalls, we are currently not accepting new applications to join the waiting list.
If you are interested in a stall at the Gleadell Street Saturday market you need to read the Gleadell Street Market Policy and the Gleadell Street Market Procedure and Protocols Manual.
How do I apply for a free community stall?
We provide a free market stall between 7am to 1pm each Saturday when the market is operating.
The stall is available for local Yarra community groups, school groups and not-for-profit organisations to assist their fundraising and promotional activities.
You can book the free community stall up to 3 times per year.
To apply you need to download, complete and submit a temporary public space application form.
You can submit your form via:
- Email: email@example.com
- Mail: Yarra City Council, PO Box 168 Richmond VIC 3121

How do I apply for a marquee?
We have a marquee and folding table available for local Yarra community groups, school groups and not-for-profit organisations.
If you wish to book the marquee and/or table when using our community stall please tell one of our officers when making your application. If you do not make a specific request for these items prior to the day they may not be available.
